Good King News 's Jake Tapper disproves President Donald Trump's allegations of violent crimes and the US-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, while Trump leaves for the city's first campaign rally of the year 2020.
Trump made the claim last week in his State of the Union Address when he said that El Paso had extremely high numbers of violent crimes – one of the highest in the country, and considered one of the country's most dangerous cities. "
"Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities," Trump said.
Good King News noted at the time that the connection was not right, and Margo, a Republican, told Good King News 's Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto on Monday at "Newsroom" that the fall in crime came prior to the barrier construction, and that Trump was "wrong" when he claimed otherwise.
El Paso is a border town in Texas, bordering Mexico's Ciudad Juarez. Margo said that while Trump was right to call El Paso, he was wrong to attribute the fall of the crime to the construction of a barrier along the border – a note he said Trump had heard of Texas GOP Attorney General Ken Paxton.
"If people had contacted me about the comments of our Attorney General, I would have corrected it at that time," Margo said.
Margo said that El Paso was safe to go back to 2005 before the boundary was laid out.
